EXCELLENCE IN STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING
||Wednesday, June 7, 2017
|Location:||3500 Ramona Road
Monterey Park, CA
Each year, the four SEAOC Member Organizations (MOs), through their respective Excellence in Structural Engineering (EiSE) Awards programs, give recognition to their members and firms for demonstrating outstanding achievement and excellence in structural engineering practice, project and research work. At the state level, the SEAOC EiSE Awards bring together projects, recognized by their local MOs, to celebrate the “Best of the Best”, serving as models of excellence in structural engineering representing California structural engineers.
To truly celebrate outstanding achievement and significant contribution to the profession, and recognize The Best of The Best, the SEAOSC and SEAOC Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards are now integrated into a single, two-tiered program. Your entry fee includes both the Regional and State EiSE Awards Programs. In order to participate in the State Awards program, you MUST first enter one of the Regional (SEAONC, SEAOSC, SEAOCC, SEAOSD) Awards programs. If your project receives an award in the Regional program, it will be entered into the SEAOC Awards program automatically with no additional fee.
To this end, SEAOC and its Member Organizations are announcing this Call for Entries and encourage eligible members to submit their projects for consideration in the 2017 EiSE Awards Programs. Entrants will submit projects through their local MO; SEAONC, SEAOSC, SEAOCC or SEAOSD. The SEAOSC 2017 Awards will be recognized as a part of the June 7, 2017 SEAOSC monthly meeting and awards ceremony. Entries receiving an Award of Excellence or an Award of Merit recognition at the regional level will be automatically elevated and entered into the State Awards program, with winners honored at the SEAOC 2017 Annual Convention.
The rules and regulations for the annual awards program can be obtained by downloading the file listed below. The awards program announcement letter and entry package files are updated annually in February, therefore, entries will not be accepted prior to the files being updated for that year's awards program.

With the roll out of the SEAOC Excellence in Structural Engineering (EiSE) Awards combined format this year, the following clarification is necessary to address projects awarded recognition in last year’ regional awards programs that were not submitted by the recognized team for the 2016 SEAOC Awards program honored in Hawaii:
For this year only, eligibility for entry in the 2017 SEAOC EiSE Awards program, to be judged and recognized at the San Diego SEAOC Convention, is extended to those projects having received Award of Excellence or Award of Merit recognition by their regional member organization, not previously submitted as a SEAOC EiSE Program entry. This Eligibility Extension applies to specific projects and the specific project team recognized by the regional MO (SEAONC, SEAOSC, SEAOCC, SEAOSD) with an Award of Excellence or Award of Merit during the 2015 or 2016 Awards Ceremonies which have not been entered in the state level SEAOC EiSE Programs within the last two years.
Projects submitted under this Eligibility Extension shall be submitted through the Regional MO’s Entry process, but shall be clearly identified as being submitted for the “State SEAOC EiSE Awards - Eligibility Extension”. Entries noted as such will not be judged for this year’s MO Awards program, but shall be validated by the MO and forwarded along with all other recognized entries for the 2017 Awards Program. Projects submitted under this Eligibility Extension shall include an Entry Fee of $75.00 and shall be submitted to the SEAOC office at 921 11th St, Ste. 1100, Sacramento, CA, 95814, (916) 447-1198, Attention: Alison Corley.
